Singing the Blues, Stringing Along, Feeling Crumby and Reaching for the Stars !

Dark and bright blues are the colors to use up this month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  And, that's what I think I've accomplished except for a few bigger scraps. 

4 - 8.5 inch string blocks...




2 - 12 inch stars.  

I meant to make a different star pattern with HSTs in the corners (The Dandy Quilt Block) but I had the pieces of fabric already cut for above and that's all there is left of those two 4.5 inch strips of fabrics. 


And finally...12 - 6.5 inch crumb blocks. 


Last year with my blue crumbs I made a Sapphire Blue Fish quilt for donation to Quilts Beyond Borders.  I don't know what I'll do with all of this year's crumb blocks. 

Have Scraps? 
Join the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and show us what you do with the color of the month each Scrap Happy Saturday.  Wow, there are lots of great ideas for scraps out there! ( Warning...grab a cup of your favorite beverage before you go blog hopping through all those scrappy projects. It will take a while.) 

Now, I just have to wait to see what February's color will be.

I LOVE your crumb fish. I hope you don't mind, but I added it the rainbow quilts Pinterest page. Looking forward to seeing how all the rest evolve through the year.

Oh what wonderful blue blocks. That little fishy quilt is so cute with the wavy lines quilted into it!

Beautiful blue blocks! LOVE your blue fish quilt. They look like glow in the dark neon fish. So many different blue prints in this quilt. Wow!

These are really scrappy and I love them all.I like the way you tamed the wild scrappiness in the fish. I wonder what this year's crumbs will turn into.

What a fabulous quilt you made with last years crumb blocks! It's amazing how these can be used. You have the beginnings of another wonderful quilt with this month's RSC blocks. Great work!

Very nice blue string blocks. I always love star blocks.

I love your blocks. You've given me some great ideas for what'll be left of my scraps at the end of each month xxx

I think how you made each row of fish go in an opposite direction really added to the quilts whimsy! SO SO cute! ANd boy...you've been busy!!!
